    Yes! Leah Remini’s book did a good job touching on this since her family was working class when they joined.

    One of P's brothers got hooked in by them, and it double wiped him out through lawyer fees. P doesn't think his parents helped with that. I'm convinced they had to just due to overall cost plus their mom's weird grudge that only resolved when their father died.

    A girl I went to college with grew up in the church and the shit she went through... She was actually interviewed by Leah Remini and her family disowned her over it.

    What do you call this antique holder for notepaper rolls? Does it have a proper name?

    My grandmother called it a message taker, but I don’t know that that is any sort of official name.

    I've been trying every combination I can think of on eBay and Etsy and am getting mostly toilet paper holders in the results. :lol:

    "hmmmm the chickens are kind of quiet today. I wonder why that is?"

    Hope many of you are enjoying your day off! I think I usually get to around 11:30am on an American holiday (or stat day in this case, I guess?) before I realize why there is such little activity.

    I hope you are spending the day eating a lot of cheese and day drinking :) Happy Independence!

    It’s not even the holiday yet! Unless the chickens have off for Independence Day observed. I do not.

    That was what I had heard, that most place would be closed on 03/Jul for the holiday.

    I could be wrong though.

    Yeah, usually if the holiday falls on a Saturday then people get Friday off. If it falls on a Sunday then they get Monday off.

    I have been off since January but D has the day off and I would if were at work. Like any holiday, Tuesday and Thursdays are the best because for 1 pto day you get a 4-day weekend.

    No you’re right! Though some places remain open, lots of American employers are closed today. Honestly though WFH has muddied the water since the work day doesn’t really start and end anymore.

    I have a FB friend who frequently posts a picture, like a sentence in English, and then a couple paragraphs in Japanese (her first language). I read the translation and I feel like I get the jist of it. She recently moved to NC, and something in her post translated to “Southern food is a lot of deep fry and crisis” :lol:

    The fact is that girl is having a hard time and however poorly she is trying to deal with it, you were all bitches to her. That is not how we do things here. And unfortunately there has been a lot of that going around the last couple months, even amongst yourselves, and if you want to fight about it, that's fine, but know that @Honey and I have been getting a lot of messages about YOU specifically, @Canaligator. Let it be known that I am 100% well and truly over it. I don't know if it's pandemic stress or cabin fever or what and I don't care, I just need everyone to pull on their big girl pants and stop being so fucking snide all the time.

    In fact, @Honey and I have decided to bring in more moderation, since apparently self-moderating isn't working for us anymore. Everyone please welcome @megatron and thank her for her help.
